The framework that is generated automaticly will be much strunger when added a paneling ; ---- I forget this all the time proberly caused my facination about the structure, and I forget to point out, that any tradisinal structure seem just as pointed and complicated without "paneling", ---- you get a bit narrow minded about pony's.
Please don't think that when I talk about geostatic structures, that I do so to "attack" this kind of structures ; though they are "weak" compared 3D-H structures but these two are kind of opposite types of structures. I focused a lot about the sheet material and single type production equipment, and I also repeated a few times, that tradisional structures carry 20 different types of extruded steel profiles, where 3D-H is based on one type of material only.
Now I need to talk around these issues and make the bait even more juicy, as whenever the production get the clue , I will need countless of resons to make the mistakes and numorous of promises to promote the develobment of a tool that with a press of a button will generate the N.C. codes for any building structure, -------- please se it like this, that hardly any test structure except the computer models show the options, but on the other hand, the number of arguments seem to grow all the time.
Contractors will need the carrot that this will build at a third somthing four times as strong, ----- but it will be the manufactores of sheet materials that will be making most profit , just emagine the amount of other materials that can be replaced with simple sheet materials.
Now the Dome in the graphic don't offer the surface as the geostatic Dome do ,but it show a few of the possible options ; walls and floors in one with the frames for the outher surfaces that _any_ structure will need paneling for anyway.
